The IASTED International Conference on
~DBA 2005~
as part of the Twenty-Third IASTED International Multi-Conference on

February 14-16, 2005
Innsbruck, Austria

The International Association of Science and Technology for Development (IASTED)
Technical Committee on Databases

World Modelling and Simulation Forum – WMSF

DBA began as a symposium of the IASTED International Conference on AI (Applied Informatics). However, with the increasing popularity of this conference, it became necessary, to create four separate conferences beginning in 2004, of which DBA is a part.

Database technology has been continuously challenged by demands from various areas and applications and has evolved in parallel with advances in hardware and computing techniques. New applications, issues, and emerging technologies such as data warehousing and data mining, bioinformatics, multimedia databases, object-oriented databases, trust management, and security have compelled database researchers to revisit areas of data modelling, query languages, storage, and internet compatibility. There has also been increasing research in computational intelligence, distributed computing, combining database technology, and software engineering. Areas of particular interest include biomedicine, biotechnology, and new paradigms of education.

Although DBA is now organized as a separate conference, IASTED is committed to bringing together researchers in an interdisciplinary environment to allow for innovative collaboration, and therefore DBA 2005 will be held in conjunction with the IASTED International Conferences on:

Artificial Intelligence and Applications (AIA 2005)
Software Engineering (SE 2005)
Parallel and Distributed Computing and Networks (PDCN 2005)
Modelling, Identification, and Control (MIC 2005)
Biomedical Engineering (BioMED 2005).

As the capital of the Austrian region of Tyrol, Innsbruck is the only major city in the European Alps and is considered one of Europe’s most beautiful cities. As both a recreational and historical center, Innsbruck offers an unrivalled combination of culture, history, and natural beauty. Twice host to the Olympic Winter Games, Innsbruck’s twenty-five Resort Villages blend in perfectly with the alpine environment and offer world-class facilities for skiing, tobogganing, and snowboarding, as well as countless summer recreation activities, amidst breathtaking landscapes. Although Innsbruck is a sophisticated urban center, it has also maintained its historical flavour and boasts an abundance of architectural and art treasures. The city also hosts a multitude of international cultural and musical events throughout the year.

Innsbruck, with its unique blend of historical, intellectual, and recreational pursuits, offers something for every visitor. DBA 2005 will be held at the world-famous Congress Innsbruck, located in the heart of the city, near the historical quarter. This facility won the prestigious 'Best Conference Center in Europe Award’ in 2000.
